Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor has launched a stinging attack on Ghanaians who have been accusing and hurling insults at Asamoah Gyan over the disappearance of hiplife musician, Castro, known in real life as Theophilus Tagoe.
Adebayor who resides in Ghana and regularly interacts with Gyan and the hitherto missing Castro, expressed sadness at the disappearance of the talented musician but was even more disappointed at the accusations and shenanigans the Black Stars skipper has been suffering since the boat accident in Ada about two months ago.
“Asamoah Gyan is one of the best players in Africa and he showed it today by scoring a great goal for his country,” Ade began his answer when questioned by Ghanaian journalist, Russel Wiafe at the post match press conference following the Hawks 2-3 home defeat to the Black Stars.
Gyan’s goal got Ghana back on level terms at 1-1 after Sheyi had himself set up Togo’s opening goal. Adebayor will of course get himself on the scoresheet to tie the game 2-2 but it was his opposite number who walked away the victor on an afternoon of thrilling and classic neighbourly soccer at the Stade de Kegue in Lome.
Ade was nevertheless quick to hail the influence and strong will of Asamoah Gyan, the greatest goal scorer in the history of the Ghana national team.
“That’s why I respect a lot of African players, players like Drogba, Eto’O, Michael Essien, Sulley Muntari. We get a lot of problems with our national teams, we get problems with our countries but we still show commitment and turn up to play,” Adebayor said.
“Look at the problems Asamoah Gyan and his family are going through. People are saying a lot of things they don’t know about and it’s sad. We all like Castro and we are all praying for him to come back. So I think it’s very bad what people are saying about Asamoah Gyan,” the Tottenham Hotspur striker said.
“He showed how good he is today, this is a player who showed how special he is by scoring a great goal today and I say congratulations,” Togo captain Sheyi Adebayor acknowledged.
